Just because you all have a pure breed you all can be proud to say what kind of dog it is, but when someone has a mutt, and its a mix of something and they just want to shorten the name, its a BIG **** DEAL... I think everyone just needs to get over it. Like that other person said, every dog deserves a chance. I have 2 Labradors mixed with doberman. We joke and call it a Labramen, but we dont dwell on it. Not all of us are so into breeding a NEW BREED. We just happen to have a shelter dog, or an "accident puppy". Its sad how a lot of ppl these days dont want mutts. It was the Grand Opening of the new PetSmart here by my house, and the Animal Shelter brought puppies and dogs to get adopted out, guess which ones went first!!?? all the pure breeds. sigh... i'm not saying you all [I]are[I] like that, but man, why hate that some ppl have mutts and not pure breeds? And why hate what we call them? The one thing i do hate tho, is someone who tries to make a new breed. Some ppl are really dumb nowadays. Thats wrong, but when its a mutt that was brought here just because of nature, then great.

What you are refusing to understand is that MANY of us here have mutts. By getting angry over giving them designer names we are in no way bashing mutts. We are just wanting to halt the progression of stupidity. If you give them "cool" names all that will result in is the Paris Hilton wannabes demanding these dogs from "breeders" instead of shelters so that they come with the name. Hence flooding the market with mutts when there are plenty available at shelters that need a second chance.

Would you perfer to get say, an orange for a decent price from a grocer or would you want to get the very same fruit, but given a fancy name, say... Organic sun fruit, for 5 time the price from your local health food store, it is the same thing. Try and look past the net thrown up for the stupid and see what is really going on here!

It sounds to me, by reading a few of your posts, that you have some sort of chip on your shoulder about mixed breeds. You need to get over that and see the wood for the trees here.

Haha... I am joking, Kona is my mutt, heinz 57, whatever you wanna call her, and nothing will change that! I have never owned a purebreed in my life, and to tell you the truth, probably never will. I'm nuts for mutts!

So once again, be proud that you have a MUTT... don't hide their true selves behind a stupid name.

When I had my dobie mix, I would tell people jokingly that she was a "purebred mutt" because we had no real idea what made her up. And so many people would go "no she's not, she's either a purebred or a mutt, she can't be both." At that point I would just roll my eyes and tell them they missed the point.

I love that story....I'm glad my family and I aren't the only people that make up breed names for our dog. My dad has this adorable dog and everyone keeps asking us what kind of dog he is. We call him our Miniature Longhaired Siberian Bullhound. Whenever we tell people that, they are very impressed that we own such a rare dog. But he is rare! He's one of a kind!

Kirby face!!!!
